 Sea blockade of Crimea not possible, only NATO can do that, - Dzhemilev

National leader of the Crimean Tatars, one of initiators of the civil blockade of Russia-annexed Crimea Mustafa Dzhemilev believes that the sea blockade of the entire Crimea, earlier announced by the event's coordinator Lenur Isliamov, is not possible.

As reported by Censor.NET, he said this to Krym.Realii.

"First, the sea blockade of the entire Crimea is not possible, war ships are needed for that; this could only be conducted by NATO if a relevant decision is made," Dzhemilev said.

He noted that the point was in strict control over products that are being illegally trafficked by tow boats through neutral waters, according to his information.

"There were three-four projects of how this could be implemented. I do not see them as feasible, but still they exist," Dzhemilev added.

Isliamov announced the naval blockade of the annexed peninsula to start in late 2015- early 2016. He also noted that the initiators of the blockade strive to "make occupiers' living on the peninsula as uncomfortable as possible."

Food blockade of Crimea started on Sept. 22, 2015.

Ukraine's Verkhovna Rada officially announced Feb. 20, 2014 as the first day of Crimea occupation by Russia. President Poroshenko signed a relevant law on Oct. 7, 2015. Western countries have introduced economic sanctions in response to the annexation. Russia denies the peninsula's annexation and calls it the "restoration of historical justice."
